India-Pakistan tension is getting upward gradually as terrorism is main conflicts for both the nation. Despite many strains, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres offers ‘Good Offices’ to both the nations.
Bringing Indo-Pak together will help UN in sorting out many things that are hurdles in the development of nations. “As you know, about the question of good offices, good offices are available to all parties if they mutually agree to this. So, that’s the case in this situation as in every other situation,” Guterres’ deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said in United Nations on Friday at a daily press briefing.
As two South Asian neighbours are important for their economic growth, Haq is afraid of not utilising the ‘good office’ from either of both nations. He stated, “very nature of the principle of good offices is that the parties themselves need to be willing to accept it.”
Last week, Guterres’ spokesperson Stephane Dujarric had said, “The UN chief is watching the rising tensions between India and Pakistan very closely and reiterates the need for the South Asian neighbours to find a peaceful solution through engagement and dialogue.”
Although, the very thing that should be considered to make this really happen is UN chief has to signal both the nation to acquire ‘good office’ as soon as possible. Guterres and his spokesperson repeatedly expressed their concerns for India and Pakistan to find a peaceful solution through engagement and dialogue to resolve the Kashmir issue.
In past year, this thing was offered to both the nations under the guidance of Ban Ki-Moon (Secretary-General) but did not work well. UN is doing its best to make the peace between these nations as South-Asia is the global market for every nation to gain remarkable welfare for their people.
